Free Shimmy: Drop the Charges!


I once again protested in Swampscott, Massachusetts, to protest the fabricated and racially motivated charges against prominent Boston social and racial justice activist Ernst Jean-Jaques jr, aka "Shimmy", whom I have had the opportunity meet in person at the Justice for George Floyd protest in Boston.


 Protesters met on Humphrey St by the beach, and from there we marched in the street to the Swampscott police station, where we stood for a short while, and then we marched back to King's beach. I also met with reporter Sophie Yarin and am looking forward to seeing some of my photos being published in her upcoming article.


Shimmy is a wonderful person with a big heart doing beautiful things for the community, and he is out there every day serving the community. We demand that Swampscott police drop these fabricated and racially motivate charges, and we will continue to protest every week until they do so.
